For sane people, the Charlottesville Murder was either a psy-ops trick or a lunatic’s egress of identity politics with which we, the 99%, are constantly divided from above to stop us from rising up to fix our country so it becomes a good place for everyone. The brutish and idiotic murder cannot be justly explained any other way. Wage slaves hating on each other over superficial stuff like skin color is simply not justifiable as a sane act. Rather, it is the mark of being manipulated from above. And when Steve Grumbine rants about people being too lazy to try and understand economics, he is simply pointing at the elephant in the room so many of us fail to see: the origin of Money in Politics. We all realize that Money in Politics is what turns our own government against us, instead of it serving us, as it is supposed to. Many of us realize that Money in Politics turns our economy against us. But the thing, that too many people still are “too lazy” (or to afraid) to do, is to follow the money and realize that it is our flawed economic system itself that creates the concentration of Big Money (in a few privileged hands) which then gives rise to Money in Politics in the first place. It’s a vicious circle, one part of which too many of us still don’t see.
I wrote about this yesterday. But if you prefer to hear this packaged in a passionate rant on video, here it is:

Support alternative media and citizen journalism. Help us any way you can.
Honesty is one of our highest goods. Without it, everything else goes down the drain:

Tim Black is one of those who was smeared by someone who should know better. Thankfully, Tim won’t be discouraged by that. I love his energy and his way with words. More power to you, Tim! And to everybody else: Follow his suggestion to make things right and support independent media instead of corporate media, such as on Tim’s Patreon page or likewise this here site’s recently created Patron Page. Power to the people!
I know the feeling. Life is bad enough, especially in a world as rigged by people against each other as ours is. And publishing every day about the insane garbage the establishment dumps on us is not exactly spending quality time. So, lately I often think about slowing down, especially since my small reach hardly warrants all the time I invest. Steven D Grumbine is someone who also works hard at this. Luckily, he has a little more reach and his Patreon account is working, so perhaps he no longer needs to hold down some dumb bread-and-butter job in addition to researching and broadcasting about our mess and ways out of it (or at least not for much longer if you add to it).
I have wanted for a long time to showcase one of his videos. Today, I finally get around to it. This particular video is quite short (because it is truncated), but very passionate and fitting pretty well into my latest string of themes:

Posts about the DNC lawsuit and the current efforts to create a People’s Party have been getting me polemic reactions of this sort: “Another Clintonite is trying to get Berners to leave the Democratic Party so the Clintonite neoliberals can continue to control it? What a shock!”
Here is my reply, which any of you may borrow who are similarly besmirched with (insincere?), illogical, and downright insulting accusations of your alleged insincerity. Continue reading
Some quotes and videos are well worth revisiting from time to time. Here is one of them:

There’s a good video getting insurance straight and outing one of our most reprehensible politicians (as he plays a wise teacher to sell his hypocrisy):

Now follows my angry rant with a bleeped word in it, because I just couldn’t contain myself in the face of someone so disgusting and utterly unworthy to live within the human covenant, leave alone living the rich life at our expense: Continue reading
Yesterday, I had the pleasure to sing the praise of Jeff Aronin, the lovely plutocrat who has made his obscene wealth by holding people’s lives hostage (especially their children’s lives – a true lover of kids, apparently). Continue reading
Basically, whenever you lump people together on the basis of one shared but very vague characteristic, great injustices and utterly idiotic consequences result from it. I understand the concern about Islamist terrorists — indeed, I share them — but there are smart and dumb ways to handle it. Being born a Muslim, for instance, does not mean being a terrorist any more than being born a Christian means being a Salem witch hunter. People’s merits should never be overlooked. Also, it doesn’t behoove us to forget that we are and always have been an immigrant nation and aspired to be the land of the free. All the more reason to act smart, not dumb.
Here is Cenk Uygur’s spirited rant, well worth watching (although I myself don’t quite agree with his Hillary-Trump comparison; I see them as different on some points, sometimes better sometimes worse, but equally bad on most):
